William H Brown acquires Barnfields

04 August 2017

Further expansion to grow network and service more customers

Property sales and lettings agency William H Brown, part of the Sequence UK network, has acquired Barnfields estate agents in Enfield.  

Barnfields is an independent family owned and run business based in the centre of Enfield and established nearly 40 years ago by brothers Keith and Malcolm Barnfield.  Barnfields is widely regarded as the leading independent estate agency in its local area and renowned for its excellent reputation and unrivalled record for selling homes.  With Keith retiring, William H Brown is delighted to acquire the business which will trade as ‘Barnfields in association with William H Brown’, keeping Malcolm at the helm and retaining all staff to provide consistency to customers and clients. 

“The incorporation of Barnfields into William H Brown is a terrific acquisition for the company and one which will extend our presence in the local market and grant us access to further buyers, sellers, tenants and investors in the local area,” says Jonathan Weedon, Senior Area Director at William H Brown.  “Barnfields is a strong and successful business that will complement our existing branches and allow us to provide an exceptional service for both customers moving up and down the A10 corridor.  We welcome Malcolm and the team to William H Brown.”,

Malcolm Barnfield said:  “Following nearly 40 years of running a successful business and with my brother Keith retiring, we considered many proposals for the continuation of our business and to take it forward.   William H Brown is a natural fit for us, a ‘like-minded’ reputable company, and being part of a larger group and having associate agents stretching to Broxbourne and throughout Hertfordshire will be a huge attraction to our customers and potential clients looking to move there.  I will continue to run the office as usual with our same friendly, experienced staff and we are very excited and proud to join the William H Brown team.”

The purchase forms part of a wider initiative by William H Brown's parent company Sequence UK Ltd to expand and invest where the right opportunities exist.  In light of the expansion plans, William H Brown is urging local estate agency business to get in touch and discuss possibilities for acquisition.
